    1: 5160 steel introduction

        5160 steel, also known as AISI 5160 Alloy Spring Steel, is a high carbon and chromium alloy (0.6% carbon content, 0.9% chromium content and 1% manganese content). The steel offers significant levels of toughness, impressive resistance to fatigue and a high degree of ductility.

    4: 5160 steel mechanical properties  

        The mechanical properties mainly include tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, area or reduction, hardness, impact value, non-metalic inclusion etc. Different heat treatment, the mechanical properties will be different, such as normalized, tempered, QT. If you want to know the properties, kindly contact the salesman.

    Application 5160 steel is commonly used within industrial applications and within the automotive industry where robust and heavy duty springs are required.

    6: Heat Treatment
        Machining 5160 alloy steel is difficult in “as rolled” condition. Hence, the steel should be annealed before machining to obtain maximum speeds.
        AISI 5160 alloy steel has poor welding property owing to its high chromium and carbon content. Either arc or gas welding methods can be used to weld the steel.
    Heat Treatment
        AISI 5160 alloy steel is generally hardened using oil. This steel is quenched at 829°C (1525°F) and tempered at temperatures ranging from 427 and 704°C (800 and 1300°F).
        Forging of 5160 alloy steel is performed at temperatures between 1149 and 1204°C (2100 and 2200°F).
        AISI 5160 alloy steel is annealed at 788°C (1450°F) and then air cooled.

    7: Delivery condition
        For hot rolled bar, usually the delivery condition is hot rolled, annealed, Black surface.
        For hot rolled sheet, usually the delivery conditon is hot rolled, annealed, black surface.
